Rodrigo is an excellent instructor! He explains everything thoroughly and makes the accordion less intimidating to play.
Barbara Judd
I have been taking accordion lessons from Rodrigo for about 6 months. I had never been successful playing a couple of instruments from long ago. I have now made great progress from Rodrigo's instructions. He helps me understand music theory, reading music, simplifying music, and how to charge my musical working memory. I have long been a collector of music. This is the first time I've felt progress and success.

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to start playing songs and as time goes on you'll be able to not only play with proficiency but to compose music for Guitars. I specialize in Classical (Spanish) Guitar, Pop and Country, I typically use our own method books based on some of the teachings from the greatest composers that have played the instrument. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

"I was fortunate enough to take lessons from Ahmad for a number of months last summer. Unfortunately I wasn't able to continue due to personal reasons, but my experience with him was wonderful and very fruitful.

I've been playing for a very long time, and sometimes in my position its hard to recognize your weaknesses and figure out where to make progress. Ahmad was able to talk to me openly and honestly about where my deficiencies were without making me feel bad in any way. He was encouraging and had a plan! I was able to make immediate progress on some very fundamental aspects of guitar that had been holding me back for a long time.

I don't think I've ever seen a more organized and efficient instructor, and it really helps in making incremental progress over the short term, and taking major strides over the long term. I'd highly recommend Ahmad to anyone looking for guitar lessons with disciplined and well-thought-out lesson plans. His focus on technique and fundamentals can help anyone through any style."

Guitar Lessons in Baton Rouge

Playing guitar can be both fun and rewarding, but everyone needs a bit of inspiration every once and a while to keep going. If you’re taking guitar lessons in Baton Rouge, you have plenty of different places where you can find live music, entertainment, and inspiration to keep going. Whether you feel you are in a rut or just want to learn something new and interesting, going out and seeing other guitarists could be just what you need to keep going.

Music over Dinner If your schedule is too full to attend concerts and other musical events on a regular basis, you will find that restaurants with live music shows are a great way to get inspiration. You can focus on the music while you enjoy a great meal. Over your next few next guitar lessons in Baton Rouge, you will be able to talk about what you saw and start trying out new music genres.

  1. Chelsea’s Café offers everything you would expect at a steakhouse. With great food and a lively atmosphere, you can enjoy a great meal and entertainment. They also have a range of music, so check out their calendar regularly to see when they are having a show you want to catch. (http://chelseascafe.com/)

  2. Lava Cantina is a Tex-Mex restaurant that gives you some foot-stomping good music to go with your meal! Decorated in a vintage rock style, they want customers to feel like rock stars. (http://lavacantina.com/)

  3. If you want something a little more upscale, Beausoleil Restaurant & Bar offers seafood and fine dining. With live music most Friday nights, it is a great way to start the weekend. (http://www.beausoleilrestaurantandbar.com/)

Live Music Venues Sometimes you just want to go out for a night on the town to find musical inspiration. Baton Rouge has many places where you can go to enjoy the evening. You can also try to catch the local guitarists after the show to talk shop.

  1. Spanish Moon has drinks and music several nights a week. You will need to purchase a ticket, but with the range of music you can hear, it is worth the few dollars it takes to get in. (http://www.thespanishmoon.com/)

  2. The Varsity Theatre hosts many different types of events, and all genres of music pass through the doors. Though a bit more expensive than Spanish Moon, you get an even wider variety of music. (http://www.varsitytheatre.com/)

  3. If you are interested in big-name bands, your best bet is The Texas Club. Many popular music groups play at this particular club, but you will need to reserve your tickets and be willing to pay a bit more for them. (http://www.thetexasclub.com/)

Taking guitar lessons in Baton Rouge is a great first step to learning this versatile instrument, but it usually isn’t enough on its own to keep you going. Whatever kind of music you enjoy, you can find a place where you can thoroughly enjoy it. It will give you new ideas and energize you to keep playing so that you can improve your skills.
